Anand Chandrasekher, som er vice president og general manager for Intel Ultra Mobility Group, udtaler: ”I dag er en historisk dag for både Intel og high-tech industrien. I dag leverer vi nemlig vores allerførste Intel Atom processor, som er Intels mindste processor til dato.
Describing how the Internet continues to grow and flourish globally, Chandrasekher said that personal mobility is a key catalyst driving people to embrace the Internet in new places and ways. Chandrasekher formally introduced five Intel® Atom™ processors (formerly codenamed “Silverthorne”) and Intel Centrino® Atom™ processor technology for Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs), outlined a series of innovations in the new platform and highlighted the growing momentum in the MID software and device ecosystem. Also covered were the benefits of the new Atom Microarchitecture, including performance features, Internet and software compatibility, and the drastic reductions that Intel has made in power and packaging to achieve this new technology platform. Chandrasekher also offered insight into the company’s future silicon roadmap.
Intel Launches Centrino Atom Processor Technology – Chandrasekher introduced Intel Centrino Atom Processor Technology, the company’s first-generation low-power platform for MIDs designed to enable the best Internet experience in a device that fits in your pocket. Formerly codenamed “Menlow,” Intel Centrino Atom processor technology includes the company’s first-ever Intel Atom processor (formerly “Silverthorne”) and the Intel® System Controller Hub (SCH) formerly “Poulsbo,” both of them designed from the ground up specifically for the MID segments.
Intel Atom Microarchitecture Forms Basis of Processor Announcement – The Intel Atom Microarchitecture has been designed from the ground up to deliver high performance-per-watt efficiency while maintaining full compatibility with the Core 2 Duo instruction set including support for Hyper- Threading technology, Virtualization technology and Intel Digital Media Boost (SSE3). The microarchitecture, based on Intel’s 45nm high-k process technology, implements ground-breaking power management techniques such as Intel Deep power down state (C6), Enhanced Intel SpeedStep technology, aggressive clock gating, CMOS mode and Split IO power supply to aggressively reduce average, idle, active, and leakage power consumption levels.
New Intel Atom™ Processor Family for MIDs (formerly codenamed “Silverthorne”) – Chandrasekher outlined five new Intel Atom processors which are the foundation for Centrino Atom processor technology. The Atom processor is Intel’s smallest processor to date, represents the fastest processor in the sub-3watt space, and packs more than 47 million transistors in a single silicon die measuring less than 25mm2. The new chips launching today support a thermal design power (TDP) range1 of 0.65-2.4 watts, consume 160-220 milliwatts in average power2, and 80-100 milliwatts in idle power3. Intel Centrino Atom processor technology pricing includes the Intel System Controller Hub, and the Intel Atom Processor at speeds of 800MHz, 1.1, 1.33, 1.6, 1.86 GHz priced at $45, $45, $65, $95 and $160 respectively in 1,000-unit quantities.
